24th Annual Taste of Solvang This Weekend

Traditional Danish Food, Modern Fare, Cooking Classes, Fine Wine, and More March 16-20


Once just a quirky pit stop, the Danish hamlet of Solvang is today a hub of good eats and great drinks, which will be celebrated this weekend, March 17-20, at the 24th Annual Taste of Solvang. In addition to the usual walk-around small bites and sips offered on Saturday and Sunday, here are a few special highlights, all at the Solvang Veterans Memorial Hall, except for the farm dinner:
